NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle’s auction of Important Jewelry on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 10am will showcase dazzling jewelry by the world’s most prestigious makers, including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, David Webb, Buccellati, Bulgari and Tiffany & Co., with offerings spanning the Antique, Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modern eras. Also attracting attention will be high-carat-weight diamond and colored stone rings, as well as fine watches, gentlemen’s accessories and objets de vertu.

Diamond Rings

The selection of glittering diamond rings features stunning examples in a variety of cuts and carat weights. Highlights include a ring set with an elegant pear-shaped diamond, approx. 5.01 carats, D color, VVS2 clarity (est. $125,000-175,000) and another with a cut-cornered step emerald-cut diamond, approx. 8.95 carats, H color, VS2 clarity (est. $80,000-120,000). An exquisite Art Deco ring from the Estate of Barbara Hartley Lord sparkles with a cushion-shaped modified brilliant diamond, 6.41 carats, F color, VS2 clarity (est. $80,000-120,000).

Colored Stones

Jewelry set with colored stones offers two elegant emerald and diamond brooches set with exceptional stones that display the prized deep green color concentration of Colombian emeralds. Emeralds of this quality are always highly sought after, and even more so at the moment. From the Collection of a Family of Spanish Descent is a circa 1935 heart-shaped brooch by Cartier set with a Colombian emerald of approx. 14.75 carats (est. $150,000-250,000). Property of a Distinguished Lady offers a bow brooch featuring a Colombian emerald of approx. 21.52 carats (est. $125,000-175,000). From the Property of a Lady is a ring centering a sapphire of approx. 13.71 carats (est. $80,000-120,000).

Van Cleef & Arpels

Platinum and diamond cluster earclips by Van Cleef & Arpels (est. $25,000-35,000) are a perennial favorite – as classic as the proverbial little black dress. A photograph of Grace Kelly wearing a pair of cultured pearl and diamond earrings similar to a pair in the sale (est. $15,000-20,000) appears on the back cover of Set in Style, The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels (Smithsonian, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum).

Louis Comfort Tiffany

Named Tiffany & Co.'s first Design Director in 1902, Louis Comfort Tiffany created iconic pieces focusing on natural aesthetics, semiprecious stones and exotic designs. The sale offers a rare Arts and Crafts Gold and Opal Necklace created by Louis Comfort Tiffany circa 1900 designed as a stylized peacock tail flanked by two pendants (est. $20,000-30,000).
